My dA story[Wow, it's been ages since I wrote a journal, so I thought this little bandwagon would be the perfect opportunity to do that.]My dA story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I joined dA in 2006. I was 16, a sophomore in high school.
A friend of mine suggested it offhand, and I had been posting my first ventures into digital art on forums for a private server of Ragnorok Online, so I thought to myself "why not! Let's see what this is all about."
I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but the moment I first started posting, I could feel something change. Having people interested in your art and stories was so motivating; it was unlike anything I had ever had in person with family or friends. Up until I joined, I'd never really taken my art seriously.
I was on here for a year before I started concepting SalaDays, a slapstick story about supernatural teens in school. A lot of people showed interest, so I started up a webcomic (and even opened up
Time for a bit of real talk.I figure this is as good a time as any to let some of you know a tiny bit about me.Time for a bit of real talk.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I believe in honesty. I believe in respect. I sincerely think that these two things are probably the most important to partake in and ponder over. Honesty and respect are what build good relationships, even better friendships, and more miscellaneous connections that are pretty mutually beneficial. To me, when someone shows thorough lack of respect or honesty when faced with it, things get a bit silly. Honesty and respect are rooted in communication, and without communication, we fall.
I like to think of myself as an honest and relatively respectful person. We all have flaws, and I'm not an exception to that.
I keep my friends close. I keep them very close, closer than my family. When one of my friends is having problems, I stop what I'm doing, I listen, and I offer my honest, yet respectful, opinions. I don't criticise them harshly, and I don't let outside people sway my judgment or feelings

•Stumbled upon the above picture on tumblr. I first imagined a highschool bully for Abbey for TΛB. The idea for Hana to be Abbey's older sister came some time afterwards when brainstorming Hana's backstory.
•Stumbled upon this picture as well. Primarly saved the image as clothing refs for Michiko Toyoda. I always commented on how Cara (who's name I didn't even know at the time) looked like an ideal daughter for Michiko.
•So the base idea for Hana was set. She would be the daughter of someone with Michiko's likeness and instead of being

Overcoming Creative BlockI think every artist has creative block from time to time. A friend of mine did recently, so I typed up my own remedy for it. And I liked how it turned out, so I think I'll post it here too. This is my advice on how to get past creative block - whether it's art block, writer's block, etc.Overcoming Creative Block2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's what you do -
Go find a book or comic book you haven't read. Read it. If you haven't read the Bone series by Jeff Smith, or the Bakuman series (it's a manga), then go find those, and read them. Read the Inkheart trilogy. Read Elantris by Brandon Sanderson. Read Endymion Spring. Find a story and lose yourself in it.
Watch animated videos and movies you haven't seen. Here's a playlist of animated videos I liked. Pick a few and watch them, and really think about the artwork being created there. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?listLkDDYT9uliZfNKCIelqyVcQO_p_e0O7Jn&feature=mh_lolz

"Hmm, I guess it's lasagna again tonight, huh?"
When suddenly! A dark shadow looms over Waifu Niffy, taking him by complete surprise.
But before he could utter even the slightest damsel-in-distress girlish scream, the ominous shadow disappeared, and along with it-... Waifu Niffy!
Thankfully Fynn, the good neighbor, heard the commotion of broken dishes and toppled furniture and rushed to the scene right away with his trusty crocodile buddy Kuro.
"Ugh great, were those two at it again-...?"
Kuro, being the clever little detective he is, sniffed around the crime scene and deduced that Waifu Niffy had been wifenapped!

Check out this brilliant tribute to Robin Williams, painted by Yuuza!!
On the lethality of mental illness
We were saddened deeply today to hear that Robin Williams appears to have taken his own life. He was a brilliant, creative mind and a voice for humanity.
I've seen a lot of tributes to him over the past hour or so. Many people have posted clips of his work, quotes, and favorite memories. That's great; it's how we honor someone. But, somehow I feel like we're missing the point.
The point is . . . it's not fucking funny.
EDIT: I am not saying that people are making fun of Robin Williams' death. I am saying that some (not all) people are ignoring the cause of it.
Reports have it that Mr. Williams suffered from depression and possible drug/alcohol abuse. I've also read that he had bipolar disorder. Regardless, what plagued him was lethal, and it plagues so many other human beings acro
She is the one named Sailormoon!Ah! Ahhhh! A new Sailormoon anime?! It is too much!She is the one named Sailormoon!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much stopped watching anime years ago, but this, I am so excited about this! I grew up on Sailormoon and still think the show/manga is one of the finest examples of gurrl power for the chillins'! I'm happy that my friends who grew up on it can now have their girls grow up on it too! The idea of a whole new generation of girls begging their mom to make them a Sailor costume for Halloween makes me giddy!
If the new anime improves on the old and actually makes Mamoru more than a block of wood, this will also make me happy
Also got a couple of the new English translated manga in the mail and totally recommend it to any one with young girls who want to find a female positive and child friendly manga that you can enjoy WITH your kiddos~
P.S. Google it if you want to know more about it. This isn't a news post, just me saying "Hell yeah~!"
